Coronavirus Claims Cause FDA To Go After 41 Bogus Homeopathy, Supplement And ‘Alternative’ Medicine Products

Journalist Chris Cuomo and his spouse were criticized after endorsing a variety of nonsense products recommended by their “naturopath” to treat his COVID-19 – claims that involved light energy, tinctures and a variety of useless placebos.

They are more common than the U.S. Food and Drug Administration either realizes or is willing to admit. Maybe they don’t worry more because President Clinton’s Dietary Supplement and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) tied their hands, and $35 billion a year in bogus products are allowed to bilk the public if they simply put a tiny disclaimer at the bottom noting FDA has not evaluated their cosmic claims. Wealthy elites like the Cuomos flock to these alternatives because their intellectual proclivities cause them to believe Science Is A Corporate Conspiracy and that nature used to cure everything until Big Pharma pushed that out of the way.

House of Medici – Wikipedia

Renaissance Italian Banker family

The House of Medici ( MED-i-chee or mə-DEE-chee, Italian: [ˈmɛːditʃi]) was an Italian banking family and political dynasty that first began to gather prominence under Cosimo de’ Medici in the Republic of Florence during the first half of the 15th century. The family originated in the Mugello region of Tuscany, and prospered gradually until it was able to fund the Medici Bank. This bank was the largest in Europe during the 15th century, and it facilitated the Medicis’ rise to political power in Florence, although they officially remained citizens rather than monarchs until the 16th century.

The Medici produced four Popes of the Catholic Church—Pope Leo X (1513–1521), Pope Clement VII (1523–1534), Pope Pius IV (1559–1565)[4] and Pope Leo XI (1605)—and two queens of France—Catherine de’ Medici (1547–1589) and Marie de’ Medici (1600–1630).[5] In 1532, the family acquired the

    Traditional Chinese Medicine: What You Need To Know

    Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use various mind and body practices (such as acupuncture and tai chi) as well as herbal products to address health problems.

    What the Science Says About the Effectiveness of Traditional Chinese Medicine

    Acupuncture

    Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body, usually by inserting thin needles through the skin. Studies suggest that acupuncture stimulates the release of the body’s natural painkillers and affects areas in the brain involved in processing pain; however, some trials suggest that real acupuncture and sham acupuncture are equally effective, indicating a placebo effect. Results from a number of studies, however, suggest real acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic, such as low-back pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis/knee pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine

    Two Medicine – Glacier National Park (U.S. National Park Service)

    NPS/Tim Rains

    Before Going-to-the-Sun Road was constructed, Two Medicine was a primary destination for travelers arriving by train. After spending a night at Glacier Park Lodge, visitors climbed on horseback to travel to Two Medicine for a night in one of several rustic chalets or canvas tipis built by the Great Northern Railway. From Two Medicine, a system of backcountry tent camps and chalets within the park allowed these adventurous visitors to live in Glacier’s wild interior.

    Backpackers and dayhikers find this area rich in scenery, providing those willing to travel by foot into the mountains with a true wilderness experience. Tenderfeet can also venture off the roads and into the wild with a casual boat tour on Two Medicine Lake.

    Today, Two Medicine has become a somewhat off-the-beaten-path discovery for most park visitors. Once discovered however it’s easy to

    ACE (angiotensin
    converting enzyme) inhibitors
    -Angiotensin
    converting enzyme inhibitors are used to treat high blood pressure. They
    cause the blood vessels to relax and become larger and, as a result, blood
    pressure is lowered. When blood pressure is reduced, the heart has an easier
    time pumping blood. This is especially beneficial when the heart is
    failing. ACE inhibitors also cause the process of hypertensive- and
    diabetes-related kidney diseases to slow down and prevent early deaths
    associated with high blood pressure. ACE inhibitors cannot be taken during
    pregnancy since they may cause birth defects. Generic ACE inhibitors are
    available.

    acetaminophen (brand name:
    Tylenol)
    -A pain reliever and
    fever reducer. The exact mechanism of action of acetaminophen is not
    known. Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the pain threshold (that
    is, by requiring a greater amount of pain to develop before
